MIT Student Charles Guan Designs Engine-Powered Shopping Cart


It is not everyday that you see an Asian cruising around in a shopping cart. MIT student Charles Guan made it happen though. The shopping cart is powered by a lithium nanophosphate cell from an A123, a 33 Ah battery pack, and a Briggs and Stratton ETEK DC pancake electric motor. All of this put together is called the LOLrioKart.

    This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in awhile. A bit bizarre but cool nonetheless.
